Live on Soundcheck: Motopony

Daniel Blue of Motopony (Amy Pearl/WNYC)

After seeing a documentary about the band Dead Can Dance, in which the band said it was able to bring its musical instruments back to life again, Daniel Blue started to call his motorcycle a pony.

Blue's band, Motopony, came to life after he woke up to his creative nature by using the sewing machine he inherited from his mom to start a fashion label.

Motopony's first album -- self titled -- is a mix of different styles and this song, "King of Diamonds," lies along the indie folk-rock end of the spectrum. Watch a video of the band performing the song in the Soundcheck studios below.
